Kendrick Lamar Sings Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off'

Kendrick Lamar and Taylor Swift

Kendrick Lamar is a Taylor Swift fan. The “i” rapper proved it by singing the pop superstar’s single “Shake It Off.”

During an interview with The FADER at the BACARDÍ Triangle last month, K-Dot sang the lyrics to the hit record off Swift’s No. 1 album 1989, which sold over 1.2 million copies in its first week.

Kendrick was unashamed to admit his love for the song. “I ain’t playin’,” he said. “I say what I mean and I mean what I say.”

Swift shared her love for Kendrick in an interview with Rolling Stone, revealing that she listens to “Backseat Freestyle” when she’s feeling down. “You want to know a trick to immediately go from feeling victimized to feeling awesome?” she said before playing the track off good kid, m.A.A.d city. “This is my go-to.”

Kendrick returned the love. “Shout out to Taylor Swift,” he said. “You can’t put great music in different genres. I enjoy great music outside of my own music all the time, so I definitely can see where she’s coming from when she says that she listens to the record, and it’s a great thing for her to acknowledge that and put that good energy out into the world like that.”

Taylor celebrated her platinum album sales by singing “Backseat Freestyle” for her 13 million Instagram followers.

But wait, there’s more. While visiting K104 in Dallas, Kendrick spit a freestyle over Taylor’s “Shake It Off” (via HHNM).
